…[it] stands somewhat apart from the rest of the Italian volume. It has been aptly descried as a scene out of Boccaccio’s Decameron. The appalling cynicism of “die Welt dem lassen, den sie mag ergötzen”, the caricature of the sanctimonious whine of the begging monk, the unctuousness of the proposal to take the sick girl’s “confession”—these show Wolf’s genius for characterization at its best.
